and governor romney is dead even. latest fox news poll of likely voters showing president obama and governor romney are tied at 46%. today the battleground states becoming a battlefield. >> president obama has seen a once steady lead in michigan decline two points. michigan is in toss-up status. the poll is from the detroit news. it finds obama leading romney 47-45%. that is the second poll in the week that has shown a tight race in michigan. >> it's not too late to turn this around. we can save medicare and social security. we can cut spending to get this budget balanced and pay off this debt. we can get people out of poverty and back to the middle-class. we can get america back on the right track and give our kids a debt free future. >> so ask yourself, who do you trust to be straight with you, to level with you. who do you trust to stand up for the middle-class and measuring? ladies and gentlemen, we are not. these guys, we are not in decline. they are in denial. >> you got fundamentals in this race. one of the fundamentals is the economy is horrible. you have the tea party that arisen si
. if that is accurate, then virtually every poll we've seen is wrong, probably favors obama by three or four points more than he's going to get. all polls, poll sisters went in. they jiggered numbers to get back to a sample they believed was accurate. gallup arguing that that is wrong. that we're seeing a shift towards an electorate much more republican than four years ago. >> i think of gallup sort of a little bit, i don't know stojy. there is no sparkle. they don't take risks. i tend to rely on gap yul because they've been around forever. this is a big number. 52-45. coo they just have gotten this wrong? >> this conforms to what they claim they're seeing. they came out and said they thought romney was up six points. i have adopted and you've heard me talk to this before, james carvel rule. he told me his standard was if you're the incumbent you've been in people's living rooms four years. they know who you are. you get the last poll. and the last poll for obama is between 44 and 47 or 48%. so this would imply you're seeing carvel rule coming into affect. i decided last week that i said it's probably g
us a look at early voting. polls showing governor romney leading president obama 52% to 45% among voter who's already cast their ballots. newt gingrich joins us, good evening, sir. your thoughts on the gallup poll of early voters? >> if it's accurate it's devastating for obama. obama played a tremendous amount of effort into building a ground game. they're confident they can turn the vote out early. they talked about it with a sense of achievement. if this is correct, it's a remarkable result. republicans have been saying during all of the snap shots well, don't worry about early voting because republican voters tend to be older, they love to vote on election day. all of a sudden these numbers i'm surprised and i frankly thought i would not have been surprised to see it reversed and see it obama, 52, romney, 45. so this is a shocking number. but it fits something that you may have seen late last week. gallup took all of this september questions, 19,000 people pretty big universe. looking at all of them together as one group. and said the surprise is that this electorate looks more
said. >>> before sandy, romney was on a roll topping president obama in poll after poll. but in the wake of the devastating superstorm, did sandy stall romney's momentum? here now are keith boykins and robert costa, jonathan colegio. mr. costa, i go to you on the conservative side. i think that barack obama did himself a lot of good. >> barack obama has had a decent week because he's been presidential in handling of this crisis in new jersey and new york. but ha we still see from the romney campaign is he's competitive in pennsylvania. he's competitive in ohio. he's trying harder. did it shake up the narrative, sure, but it's a very close race. >> my pal keith boykins on the other side of the coin. it looks to me like romney has gone behind enemy lines. he's parachuting behind enemy lines in pennsylvania and in michigan and in wisconsin and in iowa. he could be in trouble, keith. >> pennsylvania hasn't voted for a republican since 1988, i think. i mean, these are states that barack obama has never trailed in. it shows just how desperate mitt romney is because he can't co
. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand. and so is our white house correspond dan loathian. the president's schedule is packed today. he isn't just campaigning. he is also keeping a close watch on the storm which he says really is his first priority. >> reporter: that's correct. white house officials saying that president did get updates, briefings overnight. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington to get a briefing in person, to get a sense of what is taking place with regards to the flooding, the power situation. he had some of his top officials in the room with him. he also spoke via video conference with the governors and the impacted states. and again the president trying to stay on top of this situation, balance the storm and response to the storm with his campaign. and the message from the president to his top
. "fox news poll" showing him with a nine point ad vage over the president. with mr. obama on the campaign trail governor romney is sharpening the contrast with the president who is best to bring back prosperity for the nation. >> do you want the four more years like the last four years? >> no!. >> you want four more years where 23 million americans are struggling to have a good job? >> no!. >> you want four more years where earnings are going down every year? >> no!. >> you want four more years of trillion dollar deficits in washington? >> no!. >> reporter: governor romney drawing the sharp contrasts with government. do you want bigger government with stifling regulations or smaller leaner government to help the private sector to grow and create jobs. he dinged the president in a new ad today suggesting somewhere down the road he may appoint a secretary of business, watch. >> barack obama says he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is add another bureaucrat. why not have a president who actually understands business? >> reporter: now, as the pol
at the individual polls in the yellow states which are the states that are undeclared. >> gregg: that's where obama has an edge? >> he has an edge in iowa, an edge in minnesota. he has an edge in wisconsin. most of all, ohio and wisconsin. that puts him over the -- >> i saw an iowa poll with romney ahead. i saw one where he had florida. >> i think florida will go to romney. north carolina and virginia. 15 or 20 polls in those swing states in the midwest -- >> i'm not sure i believe that. >> breaking 85, 90% obama. >> i'm not sure i buy that at this point. i think polling is so difficult right now. the people's response rates. i'm just saying -- by the way, some pollsters, we will have an execution on wednesday for somebody. >> i hope it's not me. >> i hope not either for your sake. >> gregg: last jobs report came out on friday and unemployment number ticked up from 7.8 to 7.9. does that make a difference? >> probably not. i think it was enough so that obama can keep talking. let me say about the hurricane and the jobs report. the hurricane forced obama during the last week to do what the three of u
not great. more people disapprove than approve. that is a weakness for president obama. the position poll the race is even. what it tells me is that romney who had momentum for several weeks his momentum has stopped. the independent voter was romney-ryan had a slightly bigger lead than they do now. the number of people unsure from 29% now down to 16%. most broke for president obam obama. >> bret: early october it was 44-32. you're saying that the obama number goes up. >> yes. >> bret: so does romney-ryan. >> by one. obama-biden went up by 7. romney-ryan went up by one. if you look to the other unsure, 25% in early october. now down to 16%. >> bret: put number two up if you can again. >> so things breaking there more for the incumbent than the challenger. overall, what charles is saying is right. generally things break for the channeler. the income intent a known quantity. but not that it completely breaks for the incumbent. so many battleground obama maintains small lead, but maintaining it. but the fear is that romney momentum would carry him to lead in those states. >> bret: steve? >> t
now, waiverring in wisconsin. president obama losing his lock on cheese country. a new poll shows the president and governor romney tied in wisconsin. is this a sign voters in the midwest are shifting stu port to governor romney budget any? >> wisconsin. this is important now. wisconsin 49-49 and you go back to 2008, obama carried wisconsin 56-42. >> something big is happening in wisconsin and there is stuff happening in oregon and stuff happening in iowa and there is stuff happening in iowa, ohio. and there is stuff happening in north carolina. there is stuff happening all over the place and the obama regime is looking smaller and smaller and smaller as they react to it. >> we have created 5.2 million jobs over 32 months. what is mitt romney's plan? he has is no plan. that is what the american people should be focused on. >> this is a huge election and we can't afford four more years of this and we have a big choice in front of us. go on with the broken promises not just on the economy but on the deficit and on social security and medicare. >> and the president's bigger promise t
poll showing governor romney closing the gap. he is is now tied with president obama be. each of them with 49% of wisconsin's likely voters. the national polls painting an even grimmer picture for the president. this poll showing governor romney ahead by three. the governor with 50% of the vote and president obama with 47%. dick morris joins us. good evening, dick. >> good. i heard a great joke yesterday. if obama is reelected imagine the mess he will inherit. >> okay. i'm sure that the obama campaign will like that but the romney cam -- won't like that but the romney camp will enjoy that a bit. looking at the polls tonight, wisconsin in four years ago, president obama stormed the state by 14 points. thth does seem to be a seismic shift in the state. >> there is. wisconsin has become a republican state by virtue of the incredibly intense organizational efforts there of governor scott walker's people, americans for prosperity and various other political groups that have really mobilized the free market forces in the state. they have been through a recall election. a senate recall. a ju
for president obama, and we see it reflected in the polls as well. if you take a look, allup says 15 percent of the people had voted early. they were breaking for romney by 52-46. this week to reports 19 percent of those surveyed said they had voted. a break for romney by 50-43. obama won the early vote last time around, according to puke, by 19 points or was winning at this point by 19 points and now he's losing it by seven. that is more than enough to flip the election. lou: two things, if we can go back to your board, immediately apparent command one is that there is a 5-4 margin if i read correctly, democrats over republicans in the early vote in 2008 that ratio was over two times -- two times. >> almost two to one. and we are talking here about less than a 5-4 margin. we are talking about 98,000 difference on the base, and this number will continue to grow. there will be probably, the republicans are probably going to narrow that gap between the two to somewhere around 85 or 90,000 votes. and i repeat, on election day is a starkly that republicans have carried the vote, even when presid
tied with president obama at 49%. nationally the dead heat can be seen across a white canvas of polls. the real clear politics bulbuls has the two men separated tonight by a mere tenth of a percenge point to. the rasmussen reports daily tracking poll has the race at 48%. the abc ashington post tracking poll shows the governor taking a one point lead after trailing b one yesterday. those of the two most recent national polls. and while the polls are tight, they are not always accurate or indicative of the of come. either candidate could win this election by a sizable margin, if you considea sizable margin to be two or 3 percent, perhaps, regardless of what these polls are saying today. one group or demographic, like independent vters, could swing the election in the waning hours of the campaign. and what should worry the obama campaign with their race so tight that you can hear is quilt is not the unraving cover-up on been gauzy or a bust response to a major east coast hurricane. what should worry the obama campaign is that this race is all about the conomy, his record, and responsibil
for the swing state, polls showing president obama with a razor-thing thin lead. but good news for governor romney. joining me is our panel. first, rick, the good news for the governor is with independents? >> independents. you look throughout the polls, dismacial state-level poll, governor romney is winning independent, sometimes by a lot. this is interesting for a couple of reasons, president obama won independents w ago. john kerry won among independents 8 years ago in the battleground states. so this is a big reversal. can the president lose independents that badly and still win? there is a good chance that the independents look different. a lot of them are probably republicans, calling themselves independents because they are disaffected with the party and they are tea partyers. but it is a major shift to see independents, people who call themselves independents not going for president obama. you ask the romney folks and they say, this is a sign of weakness. this says our guy is very much in the mix, despite the battlegrounds. >> greta: steve, which team would you rather be on? >> righ
polls, making news in battleground state, expanding the map into obama territory and he had to pull himself from the campaign trail and he is trying to find that argument. the momentum is gone, sapped. now, look, we have a jobs number tomorrow, the continuing questions in other quars and other ways to get back in this thing. but he lost 3 prime days, you were going to be working it and and hitting it at every stop. >> stand by, panel. extremely sensitive documents unorfed in the rubble of benghazi three weeksar after the benghazi three weeksar after the attack. if we want to improve our schools... ... what should we invest in? maybe new buildings? what about updated equipment? they can help, but recent research shows... ... nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. de and ♪ ♪ you can help others along the way. ♪ ♪ a portion of every bottle that they sell goes to fight ♪ ♪ breast cancer and i think that's swell. ♪ ♪ the more
. barack obama, if you look at the polling data, he has built a pretty significant lead among women voters. these are issues women care a lot about. barack obama is directly addressing them, directly saying, if you want your rights as a woman to plan your own life, your rights as a woman, to table to assert yourself, you better vote for me, because mitt romney will rein in those rights. that issue resonates very strongly around iowa. women voters can make a difference in this election. if you look at polling, the voters isong male pretty even. among women voters, barack obama has a pretty strong lead. this election in iowa and in many other states, i think, is going to be a turn out the game. can getan get thei -- who their voters to the polls on election day. barack obama, to say, i have a lead with women voters, so let's make sure we get them out on election day and let's give them a reason to show up. this is what he thinks is the reason women will show up and vote for employer. host: a story in the quad city times -- iowa is the focus of our conversation right now with my glover, a sen
there camp to the polls and president obama has a lead going into the early vote. and absentee, is strong enough, because the republicans believe they'll win in the election day voting. >> peter doocy is live in fairfax, virginia where national polls are showing the race between governor mitt romney and president obama is a statistical dead heat. peter? >> that's right, uma, here in fairfax county today, virginia's largest locality. 1.1 million people live here and barack obama won this county by 109,000 votes in 2008. helping him win the state of virginia, we've seen a steady stream of people walking from the parking lot into the polls, today is the last day in virginia and you can vote absentee in person and since every vote is important in virginia in 2012, asking them what it is that's driving their vote. >> and i'm going to school, not around here, so i had to come back for it. and the most important issue would probably be for me, the military and the economy. and what's going to happen with it. >> i think it's really important that we have a president who understands the needs of a
daily tracking presidential tracking poll shows that governor romney has 49%, president obama 47%. scott rasmussen joins us now by phone. scott, the main question at this point it looks like this romney momentum has stalled? >> well, the race has been pretty stable, you know, governor romney had a good move after his first debate performance, took the lead nationally, made a lot of gains in some swing states and the race hasn't changed too much. it's very close with a slight edge to governor romney nationally and it may all come down to two states, ohio and wisconsin. charles: and speaking of which, those polls, you know, listen, over the weekend. you've got a lot of competition, and some of them i haven't heard of before, but seem to be a zillion and one polls to give the information, how are you feeling about the two key swing states now? >> i think both are too close to call. if i had to guess i think wisconsin is a little better for the republicans and a little better for the democrats. when i ook at the polls that are out there, in ohio, the rate, the numbers range from very from e
that is glossy brochure. >> gregg: it's really glossy. president obama leads in three separate polls in ohio by two points in each one of them the cnn poll and purple strategies poll. in ohio, senator rob portman admitted this to nbc. if we don't win ohio, it's tough to see us winning the election nationally. it's possible, but it's very difficult. how does romney specifically close the gap there in ohio? >> i think there are a couple things to be said here. there are other polls that indicate neck and neck in ohio. it depends on what poll you are looking at. we know it's very close. obviously the candidates wouldn't be spending that much time and money in ohio if it wasn't very important. ohio is important. i do believe that at the end of the day. people in ohio are going to once again be looking at what other battleground states they are looking for. they are looking for a leader. someone who has proven in their record. >> gregg: jobs and fixing this economy. but look, you saw the new g.d.p. number, president obama has presided over the slowest rate of growth for any recovery since world w
have the cnn/orc poll, shows obama with a little bit of a lead over romney. >> most of the polls in ohio show consistently the president between two and four points. ohio is interesting. the unemployment there below the rest of the country. so the economic argument in ohio hasn't been about good economy/bad economy. they kind of microtargeted which is why the romney campaign focused on the issue of coal for instance. hitting the issue of coal hard. >> and the microtargeting is so interesting because every state is different. it has a different economic fingerprint, if you will. if you look at florida, where housing is a very big deal in florida. in florida it's been kind of a pretty stubborn unemployment rate. i think it's still stuck near where it was before. 8.7% today. that's exactly where it was when the president took office. it's come down from the peaks, but still basically where the president took office. and then in virginia you've got an unemployment rate that is also essentially gone up and come back down and it's essentially flat in virginia, too. it also depends on i
time, polls showed president obama carrying that state. well, that's changed now. now the state is considered to be a toss-up. so why the big swap? we continue now with our political panel. david, i'll start with you because i know you had a point on libya when we had to wrap up. so toss-up category, obviously both candidate also spend a lot of time in ohio. why is it so important? >> because that's the most direct path for mitt romney to win. and for obama to belie mitt romney a win, if he can take that state, he's in better shape. romney can win without winning ho o but not a whole lot of options. wisconsin becomes more key. here is the bottom line, i just finished a 9500-mile fiscal responsibility bus tour, including to ohio, virginia and all the swing states. election is going to be decide on who can do the best job on the economy, jobs, and putting our finances in order. that's what matters and we better start getting with it. >> gretchen: so sasha, one of the reasons why people say the president continues to do well in ohio is because the economy is doing better in ohio, b
is either going to stay home of four for the challenger. obama at 46% shows he is slipping into underdog status as we speak. gerri: the me show you another, as long as you're talking polls, we have one, the national average. and obama is at 47%. i did he'd. gretchen, you know, here is what i don't understand. i thought that people made up their mind as the campaign progressed, but it seems that most people, like you, who are expert watchers of this campaign say lots of people change their mind right up to voting day. >> to we had seen that in the past. we have had some people who did not even make up their minds until election day. i think this election, you have seen a lot of people make up their minds early this election will come down to the few people who make up their minds over the course of the past weekend coming into the next few days. president obama has done with this hurricane is acted presidential, taking care of business. people don't look at one event but past history and the past four years. he has not always displayed that same type. he is not even saving as from the fis
in the national polls. the wild card here, the change that took place in october -- the biggest statistic that jumps out is people started judging romney the winner on the economy. he's opened now a high lead over obama on the economy. if that overrides their concerns about his personality and character. then there's not much obama can do. but they had had luck with romney's personal negatives before that. so there's potential there. >> i wonder -- i was thinking about this with the appearances in ohio. looking at the economic numbers in ohio. it's been funny at the personality level to see john kasich talk about how much better things have gotten under his leadership. we'd really to prefer you say things are going badly. as the campaign shrinks down to a small number of swing states and they have that improving economic numbers problem as it were on the republican side in florida and ohio, does that change the type of argument they need to make about change? about why mitt romney is the guy who should be trusted to do things differently than barack obama? >> they are hitting it there. ba
this month. the latest polling averages according to nate silver of "the new york times" give president obama 50.3 with mitt romney 48.6. president obama has a 74% chance of winning the election based on his strong performance in several swing states. the president is hoping to capitalize on the momentum to encourage voters to go to the polls as soon as possible by taking advantage of early voting. as of this morning, more than 10.5 million people have already cast their ballots including the president himself. president obama flew back to chicago on thursday to take advantage of early voting in illinois becoming the first sitting president in history to cast a ballot early. mitt romney's campaign, meanwhile, has been buffeted by a series of things that happened to put him on defensive. richard mourdock, who romney has endorsed, became the latest gop candidate to make con throw versal comments about rape. john sununu suggested that former secretary of state colin powell had crossed party lines to endorse president obama because of the president's race. i think what we're seeing in the race is
obama and mitt romney will be back on the campaign trail with five days left until the election. doug luzader is live for us. >> those are tough images. these are the latest poll numbers coming out from fox. the race tied up 46 a piece. that tightens slightly even earlier this month. the obama team is hoping that images we saw yesterday with the president acting as commander-in-chief will help boost those numbers. >>> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state an local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >>> the president will be back on the campaign trail in nevada and wisconsin. mitt romney will be in virginia at the rally yesterday in florida balancing his push for early voters during the poll of storm relief. >> please make sure you go out and vote early. if you have a dollar extra send it to the red cross for our friends that are in harm's way. i love you and i appreciate it and together we we are going to win. >>> both campaigns are battling for the independent voters that are generally favoring romn
he even opposes a clean energy tax credit for wind. obama, i think, is just misreading the polls entirely. the latest polling shows that -- i think ken is right. when global warming becomes local that the public becomes concerned about it. that's why the polls in the last two years have shown the public is increasingly concerned and this is particularly true of independent voters also. they are very concerned about their local pollution but also the extreme weather that they've been seeing. who could miss $14 billion extreme weather disasters in this country last year and over $7 this year. everyone sees the weather is going crazy and it's affecting them. it's not going to be affecting distant people in a distant land a distant time from now. it's happening here and now. >> suarez: joseph romm, kenneth green, gentlemen, thank you both. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> suarez: we've rounded up all of our reporting on these issues on our "coping with climate change" page on our web site. take a look. >> ifill: and we turn to the final days of the presidential contest. among the key s
